From the Cheap Seats: Rick Santorum, Robert Gibbs and Reverend Wright

Thanks Rick Santorum.  And thank you, Robert Gibbs.

The former Pennsylvania senator said over the weekend that President Obama embraced a “phony theology,” setting off a firestorm of fake outrage in the mainstream media.

You would have thought that that Santorum had suggested that Michelle Obama had salted the White House garden with fake veggies…Oh wait, she did.

Never mind that Santorum was actually talking about the president’s religious-like dedication to radical environmentalism.

But then, the president’s Christianity (which he recently invoked to sell his tax hike proposal) has been raising eyebrows lately.

Maybe this weekend will finally put the president’s value system on trial, finally, as it should be.  As it should have been with John McCain, but that’s a sad tale we needn’t retell.

Robert Gibbs, now an Obama campaign mouthpiece, said Santorum’s comments “crossed the line.”

What line is that, exactly?  The line of Jeremiah Wright, famed  notoriously of the “God damn America” sentiment?  Is that the line that the prez wants drawn in the sands of the Denver suburbs? How about in the San Luis Valley?

Sure it’s old news, but Gibbs, bless his oversized ego and even larger yap, put it back in play. Perhaps Gibbs thinks that a purple state like Colorado will ignore it all, but Santorum won’t let it go.  And just wait until Obama’s minions play fast and loose with Mitt Romney’s Mormonism – a not-so-whispering campaign that is already underway.

If Obama wants to have a fight over values and religion, plenty of his critics will be eager to oblige.  And a good place to start might be where John McCain never picked-up: the hate-filled ramblings of Jeremiah Wright.
